Pumpkin Pie-Sicles (Popsicles)

“This is from Family Fun's Nov. 2008 issue. I had some butternut already cooked (see Rita's Pureed Squash Butternut, Acorn Any Hard Winter Squash! for an easier way to cook the squash!) so I halved the recipe and it made 6 popsicle molds. It really tastes like pumpkin pie! My 5 yo was begging for another one right after the first one. I used half and half instead of the cream and pancake syrup, since I didn't have maple (it's up to $20 quart here!) I bet it would work with canned or cooked pumpkin too, although I'm not sure how much to use. What a great, healthy alternative to all that sugary, artificial colored popsicle junk the kids usually get. I also used 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice for the halved recipe, so I would recommend using the higher amount of spice, or even 1 tsp. Prep and cook time do not include cooking the butternut.”
